7:01 am
complete stranger after having acid thrown in her face. she will tell her incredible survival story "early" this friday morning, september 3rd, 2010. captioning funded by cbs we are live with a special west coast edition of the broadcast. i'm harry smith. >> i'm erica hill. good to have you with us this morning. >> talk about a big storm. this is a really big storm. it is the size of california. >> yes. >> that's how big earl is. at 1997 on the west coast, all eyes are on earl. it brought rain and dangerous wind gusts as it brushes up the eastern seaboard. >> at this hour earl is centered east of ocean city, maryland. top winds now at 105 miles an hour. it is moving north at this point towards long island and towards cape cod and all those areas are
7:02 am
bracing for the impact. >> we have reporters up and down the east coast this morning from north carolina to massachusetts. and we start with cbs news correspondent kelly cobiella in kill devil hills, north carolina, where they have been feeling earl ought night long. good morning, kelly. >> hours, yes, good morning, harry. for hours and hours and hours and as you can see here, the strong winds and heavy rains are still coming in waves here along north carolina's outer banks. this after a long nerve-racking night as earl brushed up along the coast. hurricane earl battered north carolina's coast with strong winds and horizontal rain for hours overnight. winds gusted up to nearly 70 miles an hour. water covered parts of the beach road. at one point more than 500 homes were without power. across north carolina's outer banks, at some 30,000 tourists cleared out. but there was no evacuation
7:03 am
order for most locals. they boarded up businesses and bought generators and planned to wait it out. the big worries from the storm that stretches 400 miles, waves as high as 18 feet and a storm surge up to 5 feet that could push sea water and sand across the road. last year, a dorm left four feet of sand in bill jones' driveway. >> two weeks before i could get to the house to clear the driveway. >> reporter: remarkably it appears all of those worries did not materialize. so far it seems that damage along the outer banks is minor. in the words of the governor of north carolina, it looks like this state dodged a bullet. erica. >> kelly cobiella. thanks. we want to turn to dave price who who is watching earl along the coast in north carolina. that's where earl is moving on to next, the next target. >> reporter: you can hear the
7:04 am
winds kicking up. the surf is obvious behind me the. ten feet. could go up 17 feet before the day is done. dodging the bullet is the theme of the day. trajectory heading out east. let's bring out the graphics and show where where the storm is, where it is going, what it will do. currently 130 miles east-northeast of cape hatteras with winds still of 105 miles per hour. c category 2. now moving to the north-northeast. the track will bring earl to the point it clips the extreme eastern end of long island. then clipping cape cod and keep in mind what that means is we have a tropical storm warning in effect from here to ocean city all the way up to cape cod, then a hurricane storm warning in and around the cape cod area. wind speed here and along the jersey shore, upwards of 20 to 30 miles per hour. as you head to long island, 30 to 40. really the case the big unknown now are for the cape. track continues as it is, 40 to
7:05 am
50 with gusts higher than that. but keep in mind that it could have been a lot worse. these are finicky storms. big danger will be the rip currents up and down the eastern seaboard and that will last right through the weekend. no swimming here in ocean city all day today. we will continue to watch it. >> rough seas behind you there. thank you very much. it has been nearly would decades since new england had a hurricane. but earl is expected to pound the massachusetts coast tonight. cbs news national correspondent dean reynolds is in cape cod. he has the latest from there this morning. dean, good morning. >> good morning. as you can see behind me, the fog is rolling in to cape cod right now. signaling the approach of earl. and it is the direction of the storm that's upper most in everyone's mind here because a slight shift in that course could save the people here a lot of trouble and money. from long island to cape cod, those on the eastern seaboard
7:06 am
waited word on earl's direction. if it turns west could it run smack into long island and cape cod. if it heads east and out to sea, a billion dollars in damages might not occur. the red cross was storing up supplies and power company trucks were positioned on long island. while on cape cod, they were hauling boats from the sea. >> over 75 to 100 miles an hour in chatham. not worth the risk. >> reporter: there may be a state of emergency in massachusetts but there is no real sense of urgency yet. tourists strolled ashore and peered into the distance for an early glimpse of the big storm to come. what are you doing to be prepared? >> water, candles, food, ice. >> reporter: and while those along the shore on cape cod are being urged to leave, many are staying put and looking ahead to earl's departure. you are going to ride it out? >> hopefully back to the beach.
7:07 am
>> reporter: while early has been downgraded to a category 2 hurricane, that still makes it the strongest storm to hit new england in 19 years. >> dean reynolds on duty in cape cod this morning. thank you so much. turning to more breaking news out of miami. the main airport is open this morning. it was shut down overnight after a suspicious package was found in a piece of luggage. cbs news correspondent bob orr joins from us washington with the latest. good morning. >> good morning. holiday weekend off to a tense start this latest airport scare in miami. authorities tell us now everything is get back to normal slowly but for search hours overnight, six terminals were shut down in miami. air important roads were closed. bop squad tech anythings moved in. around 9:00 last night, authorities spotted something suspicious in a checked bag. police found the owner of the bag and took that passenger into custody. police ask federal agents salt and pepper hours talking to the
7:08 am
passenger. a 70-year-old scientist that had just flown into miami. sources tell us he's cooperating and no charges are expected. sources say the man had a canister in his luggage that looked like a pipe bomb. no explosives were found. we are told it is now being tested for other possible contaminants. the good news in all of in is the evacuation happened during nonpeak hours. very few flights were affected. >> bob orr in washington this morning. wall street is rallying this morning. thanks to some new unemployment numbers that are not as bad as some economists were expecting. a sign that things are getting better, let's ask cbs news business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis. good morning. >> good morning. >> we are talking about a tends of a percent in the gross number, net number not as bad as some people feared. >> unemployment is still heading up. 9.6%. that's what we learned from for the month of august. the number of jobs lost in the month is actually less than what
7:09 am
many were anticipating. 54,000 jobs still lost to the economy. but the headline out of the report is that it was better people thought we would lose more jobs. >> in a given month, a number of attrition of jobs, jobs go way, new jobs. in any given month, where was the balance of trade? >> the good news is private payroll are going up. private jobs were created in the month 67,000 of them. that's more than anticipated. the census jobs are really where we saw jobs coming out of the market. 114,000 temporary census workers. their work ended. also at the state and local government level. that's where we are also seeing jobs getting lost with those budget deficits running so high in many place. >> right. if you have a job right now, is there any -- what's the best news in all of this? >> the silver lining in the report is that if you have a job first off, you are working more hours but getting paid for those hours. the average payroll is going up six cents an hour. in the month of august.
7:10 am
at least you are getting paid more for all of that, blood, sweat and tears. temporary workers increased in the month of august. that usually means that there will be more hiring down the road. >> i was wondering why my wallet felt so much fatter this morning. six cents an hour. finally, what do you think that -- what we -- through the last couple of months as we watched the numbers shifts around and changed, is there a way to look forward in terms of what you think this means n. >> the forward looking view now is that employers are running so thin with the employees they do have. there's likely going to be fewer layoffs going forward and employers said as much. the issue we are facing now is that more prif a job needs be created, 100,000 of them on a monthly basis just to see things stabilize to a normal level. >> rebecca jarvis, thank you as always. appreciate it. between want on get more news now. betty nguyen is at the news desk p good morning. >> good morning to you at home. we begin with the new oil rig explosion in the gulf of mexico. the good news is that it is not likely the bp disaster but it is

it is not a drilling rig but oil and natural gas production platform. anchored to the sea floor in 340 feet of water. ordinarily it pumps 1400 barrels of oil per day from seven active wells. the company says that they are safely shut down and not leaking oil. >> there were no drilling activities under way. this isn't a blowout by any means. there were no reported chain or oil or spill around the facility. >> reporter: officials are trying to determine what sparked the fire on vermilion 380. 200 miles east of this damaged platform bp is making progress on its blown-out well. yesterday engineers removed the temporary cap they placed on the well in july. that's the one that cut off the flow of oil. and no new oil is flowing. sometime after labor day they will begin the process finally killing this well from the bottom. don teague, cbs news, new orleans. it is being called the largest human trafficking case in u.s. history.

models. when they have the new model come out, they want to get rid of the old-looking stuff. trucks tend to have the best cash back offers. suvs also in that category. midsize cars, nissan i'm told has a lot of 2010 models, as does toyota. remember all the problems they had earlier this year with prius, this has good incentives. >> this is where car companies make the biggest profits, trucks and suv. i suppose as their inventory is finally coming down, they say, we'll cut you a break. >> it's important to remember, the type of deals, the incentives you're getting from that cash back to the financing, it's coming from the manufacturers themselves. not the dealerships. so the dealership, you negotiate with them on price. the manufacturers have these incentives. >> you have manufacturer incentives, dealers still trying to get as much profit out of every single car. what kind of resources do you suggest we check so we can be armed, as we talked about the other day, with as much
7:48 am
information as possible so we really do get the best deal? >> edmunds.com, they talk about buying used rather than new. cars.com has the top ten buys right now for the labor day weekend. and lastly, go to the manufacturer websites, the general motor, the ford, the toyota websites because there they list the incentives. >> here are our websites. >> go there first then the dealer. >> is that your number one buyer tip, do your -- as we always say, do your homework? >> yes. know before you go. do your homework before you head to the dealership lot. once you get to the dealership lot, you want to know the value of your trade-in so you're not just handing over a car and saying, whatever you give me for it, i'll take. you want to know that value. also on top of that, you want to know the incentives before you get there. lastly, negotiate on price with the dealership before you talk incentives. because price is, like i said, where the dealership can come around and you can have a little
7:49 am
negotiation. the incentives are set in stone. >> and you can check your trade-in value online as well. thank you very much. for more car buying advice, all you need to do is go to cbsmoneywatch.com. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. ♪ everywhere i go ♪ i'll pass it on, ♪ around...and on...and on... edible arrangements. happiness is always in season. visit, call or go to ediblearrangements.com.

8:05 am
questioned by local and also federal officials. cbs news has confirmed just a short while ago that the man in question is 70 years old and is a scientist. apparently he had a canister in his luggage that greatly resembled a pipe bomb. federal and local law enforcement are interviewing the man who is being detained at this point. however, no charges have been filed and the man has not been arrested. the canister, which caused the suspicion, has been testing. what we are learning so far, there is no trace of explosives. that is very good news. an fbi special agent at the airport also tells me the man is a u.s. citizen and is cooperating with authorities. again, no charges have been brought at this time. this all started about 9:30 thursday evening when this passenger came in on an international flight from brazil and was going through customs and federal officials detected something suspicious. now, a federal statement that
8:06 am
was released tells us, and we have learned, four of the six terminals here at mia were evacuated as a precautionary measure. also, the airport roadways on several parts of the airport were closed off. however, no flights were canceled. there were three flights that were to come in during this time while the airport was being evacuated. those flights were simply diverted to another section of the airport. right now things are running smoothly again at mia after the airport was evacuated for seven hours. this man, the 70-year-old scientist is indeed now being questioned. >> thank you. unemployment numbers for august are out this morning. the number of jobs in america fell by 54,000 last month. that was less than analysts predicted. the unemployment raise by 0.1% to 9.6%. if you have a job you're

8:12 am
to go, stomach aches, headaches. not just the normal sick, i won't get out of bed, i don't want to go. you have to figure out what's making them nervous. it could be school. >> if it is school causing the jitters, you've broken this down by age starting with preschoolers. >> this is a big deal. this could be potentially the first time they are separating from mom and dad. >> absolutely. you want to try and help them do it as easy as possible. you haven't done this yet but you want to build inspirations so they get used to not being with mom and dad. you want to read with them a lot. you want to give them as much time to start to get ready for school. stay positive. you mentioned parent anxiety. parents get nervous and kids pick up on that. visit the classroom and get names of classmates so they know what they are expecting going on. >> make it more familiar after they get there. after preschool, big time. going to kindergarten. >> kindergarten and elementary school. some things apply. you still want to stay positive

lindsay lohan is taking a step back into the hollywood mainstream. she has a small part in the movie "machete," opening today. nancy o'dell is joining us with more. good to see you this morning. >> good to see you, too, erica. you know, the question that everybody in hollywood is asking, of course, can "machete" cut through all the bad press lohan has gotten this year and can moviegoers separate lindsay's character. >> reporter: the stars rolled up in style for the los angeles premiere of "machete," co-star lindsay lohan's first film in three years, but she was a no-show. >> lindsay was asked not to be there because her personal problems would detract from the actual film. >> reporter: still lohan's
8:18 am
filmmakers say her performance in "machete" is a razor sharp comeback. >> she's amazing. >> i can't wait for people to see it because it will remind them, oh, yeah, there's an actress behind all the distractions of the paparazzi. >> reporter: lohan's latest legal troubles began less than a year ago. she showed up more than an hour late to her beverly hills probation hearing. >> the court is also going to -- >> reporter: and it got even worse. in july she was a no show for an appearance and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days of rehab. she served only a fraction of those sentences. everybody is saying she got off easy when it came to the law. but do you think that she is paying careerwise? >> she's certainly paying careerwise. if she really wants to focus on her career she needs to surround herself with smart advisers, smart people that can help her chose a role that's not a troubled personal backstory so she can achieve that career comeback she wants. >> love yeah. bye. >> reporter: it's easy to forget that before her run-ins before
8:19 am
the law she was a much loved star with endless potential. dressed as a nun and toting a gun in "machete" might do little to remind audiences of her skills as an actress. >> in this movie she has threesomes with her mother, naked for a big chunk of time, a scene where her father picks her up from a drug den. it's hard to separate her real life and the acting right there. >> reporter: so you're not really going to be focusing on her performance? >> that's exactly right. >> and, unfortunately, it is hard to revive a film career when it's on what some are calling the hollywood equivalent of life support. as you'll recall, her last movie "i know who killed me" was one of the most notorious flops of 2007. we hope that doesn't happen this go round. >> not helpful when you look at all that. also as we heard from the hollywood reporter, the role itself may not be the best vehicle for lindsay coming back,
8:20 am
although obviously this was shot a little while ago. is there one particular role that could help her restart her career? >> i think her advisers are telling her and observers by watching say she needs to remind the public what a good actress she really is. and she really is. lindsey powers with the hollywood reporter suggested doing fallen apart in an ensemble drama then all the focus wouldn't be on lindsay. something that shows an image or emotions. perhaps she would follow robert do downey jr.'s lead. for example, he did "iron man," everybody said that was a can comeback. i think people would be pulling for him. >> and cease continuing to do well. she does have a little something coming up next which doesn't exactly fit that bill, does it, nancy? >> no. doesn't, unfortunately. when you hear this you just go, oh, no. it's not an action role or a role that will remind fans of
8:21 am
lohan's more innocent times. she's set to play the lead in a movie called "inferno" which tells the story of linda lovelace. it actually is a role that could show her talents as an actress because she is playing the lead or once again be a role where people can't get past the nudity and risque scenes. we'll just have to wait and see what happens. >> there are reports out that britney spears' old manager is now taking on lindsay lohan's career. what do you know about that? >> i've heard some of those rumors as well. we've seen britney do a little comeback and every now and then we see a misstep again. you would hope whoever is out there advising lindsay will do some of these things we're talking about. the thing we remember about lindsay and everybody is tending to forget her beginning movie and she was this really cute freckle-faced kid we all loved and adored in "parent trap" and
8:22 am
we want to see her go back to that and not go through these troubles. you know, the one thing i can say is that sometimes the bigger the fall that you take, the bigger the rise you can make. for lindsay, a lot of us are pulling for her out there. i've certainly interviewed her umpteen times. i have to say, she's a very nice young lady. i hope she gets it together -- >> and as the pendulum swings in terms of sympathy is starting to swing back in her direction. she comes out, does the "vanity fair," talks about -- they say she's really not addicted to prescription drugs, et cetera, et cetera. maybe, maybe, you know -- and i think you're right. people really do love a comeback. >> absolutely. we saw it with britney spears and -- >> you mentioned "parent trap" but also "mean girls," she was fantastic in that movie. >> nancy, thank you. it is interesting because there are days that headlines come up on her story and you're like --
